We stayed at leela's for 3 nights and we felt like we were on a second honeymoon! The rooms, view, decor, PEOPLE, left nothing to be desired. if you complain here.. Well you would be totally pretentious! This is a lovely experience. To our butlers himanchu and nirmal, you were very kind, always smiling, and made our stay verymemorable. We will never forget our visit. The Soras.

this is one of the hotels where u find everything... scenic beauty, leisure, romance, huge place, good rooms and guess what else? insects in food! shocked? so was i! i couldnt believe my eyes. and guess what management did? just a simple sorry. i also wrote a complaint but didnt receive any feedback!!!!! later on i thought its such a big blunder from hotel like leela. no one can expect such a thing from hotel like leela. i mean insect which germinates when food is stale????? (illi in hindi). i hated the thought that i already had meals from them dont know what all i ate. such unhygenic condition. dont know how they pass QC. the least they could have done was made our stay complimentary but what did they do? didnt even reply to my complaint. Even a normal three star hotel will be more hygenic than them. So u guys going to leela check out ur food. it can be expired and stale and full of insects.

We stayed for 3 nights at the Leela in March on a trip to different parts of India. It was truly a memorable experience and the place we loved the best over a two week trip. The location was perfect and the amenities and the staff were wonderful. The food and drinks were great and it was just so peaceful. A delight. Everything from the arrival to departure made you feel as if you were special. The staff could not have done more to make our stay so wonderful. The rooms and amenities were top notch and we were truly sorry to leave. We hope to return to this lovely place another time.
(The only downside for me.........was how bitten I got when we dined lakeside one evening at Sheesh Mehal . The food was excellent but the mosquitoes were dining on me, in spite of having insect repellant all over. I'd certainly eat there at night again..............it was delicious..............but I might wear long pants and long sleeves the next time and I'd advise anyone else to do the same.)
I'd highly recommend this hotel to anyone, My husband and I have stayed at first
rate hotels throughout the world and this one rates at the top. The best thing about it is the staff. Very friendly, helpful and courteous. I don't think we have experienced this level of service anywhere else we have traveled. Congrats to the staff of the Leela!

Since the small boat started to cross the Pichola Lake , I relised the place we were going to was a special place. And it is ! The arrival was fabulous . Smiling staff, with umbrella for the sun,were waiting for us. While we were entering the Hotel, sweet-smelling rose petals were falling from the ceiling. A dream ! The check-in was done in an open air area with a small water fall on a yellow and black marble floor.
We were escorted by a gentle lady to our room on the 3rd floor. The room was marvelous. Very spacious, absolutely clean and with a fantastic view of the lake. Amenities were perfect. Small cakes and chocolates ready to eat every afternoon and before going to bed. The Restaurant served, absolutely, perfect indian and western food.
The swimming pool is unforgetable, the biggest in Udaipur. The SPA center ... a paradise where everybody can spend a couple of hours of relax with professionists who take care of guests.
This happened to me at Leela Hotel in Udaipur.

Room Tip: Second and third floors of central building .

Hotel Leela at Udaipur is located just beside the lake, and looks stunningly beautiful. But considering how expensive it is, the food was not great at all. In fact, I was surprised that during our 3 night 4 day stay there, we were hardly served authentic rajasthani food. Also, the property, though very good looking, is not huge. Hence, there is nothing much to do in terms of entertainment activities. For example, they only have a swimming pool, a gymnasium, and a couple of other lawn games (croquet, bocce). Also, I thought their service staff was at times quite casual in their approach.

I give them the benefit considering its just a 2 year old property and considering how aesthetically it has been developed. However, they do have plenty of scope for improvement.

Thank you very much for your feedback.
We will ensure that we learn from your comments and improve those areas that need improvement. Our Place has been recognized for its excellence and delicious food, so, I do hope you come and experience us again, especially when Sheesh Mahal opens in September.
Our Spa, which has been internationally and nationally recognized, is also a great alternative to long hot days of leisure, where one can relax and enjoy, rejuvenate and spend quality time at the Palace.
We look forward to welcoming you again soon.

we selected this hotel after a lot of research on this site and elsewhere and we were spot on....right from the transfer from railway station, to the jetty transfer,
and the rose petal showering on arrival amidst melodious music....this modern palace went out of their way to make our stay most comfortable and of course memorable. the heritage view room was perfect, so was the hospitality of the hotel staff......breakfast could have more variety and a better and elaborate layout.....but all in all a dream come true experience.
